In this piece of work, the researcher will concentrate on the impact of new product development on the growth of a firm. The researcher will also look at how new product development determines both the levels of economic growth and standard of living of citizens. New product development is one of the avenues of enlarging thesize of the product port folio of any organization, increasing its sales volume and enlarging its financial strength. Manyorganizations seems not to have recorded much success as aresult of depressed economic situation. It is imperative torecognize the fact that necessity give birth to invention or innovation, and for an organization to avoid being forced out of the market, it has to innovate.New product development is important in a competitive marketlike that of Nigeria. It determines both the levels of economicgrowth and standard of living of the citizens. Most products in themarkets today have undergone changes over times.According to Mr. Roland’s Lecture note, new product has beenseen as the life blood of any organization. This is because seizingnew opportunities as they emerge is a way to increasing profits.This means that a firm with a successful new products gives it thechance of creaming off large profit before effective competitiondevelops. Every company must develop new product becausenew products shapes the company’s future. Replacement productmust be created to maintain or build sales. Customers want newproducts and firms will do their best to supply them. Companiesthat fail to develop new products are putting themselves at greatrisk.Developing and managing products is critical to organization’ssurvival and growth. Although several organizational approachesto product management are possibly the share common activityfunctions, and decisions necessary to guide a product through its  life cycle. Product managers coordinate efforts and become thestrategic centre for the product in all markets.Marketing managers focuses on products for specific market. Adventure team is sometimes used to develop new products.Members of the venture team come from different functional areawithin an organization and have authority to execute plans.Product planning requires the coordination of such functionalareas such research and development, production andengineering, research and finance, accounting and marketing.Each of these areas of departments has functional authority over some aspects of the product.To maximize the effectiveness of a product mix, an organizationusually has to alter its mix through such methods as new productor the development of existing product deletion of a product, or the development of a new product. Product modification refers tochanging one or more of a products characteristics. Thisapproach to altering a product mix can be effective when theproduct is modifiable, when customers can perceive the change,and when the modification is desired by consumer. Products canbe changed through the quality, functional or style modifications. New product development involves generating idea, screening todetermine which idea to develop, expounding an idea throughbusiness analysis, test marketing and commercialization. Thedecision to enter the commercialization phase means that theproduct has gotten to its full scale of production and that acomplete marketing strategy has been developed. The adoptionprocess by which the buyers go through in accepting a productinclude; awareness, interest, evaluation, trial and adoption.The process of a company in new product requires theestablishment of effective organization for managing the newproduct development process.
